Food for Thought: Tim Pawlenty Talks Up Virtual Classes

The Chronicle of Higher Education, a publication that primarily supports the status quo in post secondary education reports former Minnesota Governor's (and supposed Presidential candidate's) Tim Pawlenty's interesting thoughts about using technology to help cost cuts and expand services for higher education. We appreciate men of ideas in both politics and education where the same-old-same-old seems to be treated as sacred.

Higher Education needs lots of creative ideas beyond the traditional brick and mortar four year undergraduate school. Society needs to cut wasteful spending on all levels. Where creativity envisions concepts that do both everybody's a winner.
